Using a Local Climate Impact Profile (LCLIP) with Aberdeen City CouncilCase Study Complete
Date added: 11/07/2016
Aberdeen City Council used a Local Climate Impact Profile (LCLIP) to assess their vulnerability to climate change.
Between 2008 and 2013 Aberdeen City Council was affected by 59 weather related incidents, ranging from flooding on the roads and fallen trees during stormy weather, to school closures caused by snow and ice. Using a Local Climate Impacts Profile (LCLIP), the Council assessed its vulnerability to weather events, and examined how the findings can be used to increase their resilience to future extreme weather. This case study explains how this process was completed using a six stage approach.
